Al Lasher’s Electronics was founded in 1960 by Alfred Lasher. Al had previously worked for Pacific Radio Supply, calling on T.V. and radio dealers, stocking their shelves right out of the back of his station wagon. As Pacific Radio began moving into HiFi, Al decided to open a radio shop of his own, in Berkeley, as a branch of a friendly competitor, Styles and Engleman. Six months later, because the store wasn’t doing as well as he had hoped, Al purchased the stock and reopened as Al Lasher’s Dealer Electronics .
As we strive to preserve the legacy of the late Al Lasher, we continue to operate as a family run business, with customer service as our #1 priority. We hope you can experience a taste of that from this site or savor the full flavor when you visit our shop. Not only do we stock the latest in electronic parts, we also carry many unique items, since we tend not to throw things away. So if you need that tube for your grandmother’s Philco radio, or a cmos battery to keep the bios in your Pentium computer, give us a call. We’ll definitely give it the Lasher Family best!
